About Erin Lee Brewer
The foundation of my training as a Somatic Therapist began in 2002, when I was attuned to level I of Usui Reiki. Vibrational healing was my first language, and as I went further in with my studies over the years, I began to discover I could “see” and "feel" into dysfunctions held within the body. As I honed my intuitive skills, I began to understand much of our life’s narratives are held within our cells. The grief of loved ones we’ve lost, the stories of the work we’re meant to do while we’re here, our higher truths, the children we had or never had, even geographical places that we yearn to visit are all held in our body stories. All of these narratives serve as opportunities for healing. This understanding and practice has become the foundation to all of my services that I offer.
I am an Ohio State Medical Board Licensed Massage Therapist and have been in private practice for 9 years. I also hold a certification as a Reiki Master Teacher/Therapist, a diploma in Medical Assisting, a limited x-ray license focused on erect spinal x-rays, and have previously worked as an Chiropractic Physical Therapy Assistant, and as a clinical MA in Obstetrics & Gynecology.
I have attended trainings in Shiatsu, Integrated Neuromuscular Therapy, Therapeutic Application of Essential Oils, Massage Work with Anxiety Disorders, Nature Shaman practices, Sound Healing, Vibrational Healing, Aromatherapy, Crystal Therapy, along with a 12-month long Reiki Master Training Program through Angelic Devas Spiritual Enrichment Center in Yellow Springs, Ohio. I am currently in the third year of Dr. Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing® Trauma Resolution Program.
Somatic Experiencing® techniques are incorporated into all of my sessions with clients. In addition, I use various tools to help your nervous system rest so that you can begin to feel more regulated. As your body settles, we can begin the deeper work of gently releasing excess and outdated energy in the body and nervous system that’s been keeping you ‘stuck’. Over time you will notice an increase in your capacity for managing everyday issues. You will begin to feel better for longer periods, and you'll notice your life shifts to a fuller sense of goodness and ease.
Below is a list some of the tools I may use in our sessions together. We will work together to determine which tools are best suited for you.
- Somatic Experiencing ® techniques (also called, SE)
- Presence and Co-regulation
- The Safe and Sound Protocol aka SSP – a listening protocol
- Mindfulness, Grounding, and Presence Techniques
*I’m a Licensed Massage Therapist, Advanced Level Somatic Experiencing® Student, Safe & Sound Protocol Practitioner, and Reiki Master Therapist. My specialty is somatoemotional release, and regulating the nervous system through bottom up modalities of healing and supportive touch. I am not a psychotherapist. Depending on your circumstances, I may recommend that you work with a licensed counselor or therapist in addition to having sessions with me. Or, I may refer you to another practitioner if I feel your needs are better served by another professional.
